Girls’ soccer notes: Another shot at ECR for Sylmar

first_imgElizabeth Arias doesn’t need to be reminded about the outcome of Sylmar’s last girls’ soccer match against El Camino Real of Woodland Hills. The Spartans were making their first appearance in the City Section quarterfinals in program history, and found themselves on the wrong end of a humbling 11-0 defeat last year against the six-time section champion. With UCLA-bound Nicole Sweetman sidelined the entire season with a knee injury, the Lions (16-6-1) were reduced to four available seniors on their roster. But freshmen Kelly Johnson, Lauren Lindstrom and Sam Nordlund are the ideal complement for veterans Caroline Cislo, Melissa Dahl and Casey DaSilva, leading Oaks Christian to its fourth Southern Section Div. V final in five years after qualifying for the postseason as a wild-card entry. “The seniors understood what their roles were, whether it was starting or coming off the bench,” Oaks Christian coach Jan Hethcock said. “Nobody complained about playing time, they just went out there and did what was asked of them and did a great job.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! “Last year, our team kind of stepped back and was satisfied with where we were,” said Arias, a senior co-captain. “We proved (this year) that we all want more.” Sylmar’s 2-1 victory Wednesday over Granada Hills made the second-seeded Spartans (30-2) the first Valley Mission League team to reach the City girls’ soccer final. center_img Sylmar, which has won 27 in a row, will get its rematch at 6 p.m. today against top-seed ECR (19-2-4) at East L.A. College. “We keep improving every year,” said senior co-captain Nicole Gonzalez, who has set an area record this season with 22 shutouts. “We’re really proud of what we’ve accomplished.” Competing for a City title demonstrates Sylmar’s growth under seventh-year coach Jose Navarro. The Spartans scored one goal in his first season and suffered first-round losses in 2004-05 before reaching the quarterfinals last season. “These girls understand where they’re coming from,” Navarro said. “They appreciate what they have and how hard they had to work to earn it.” Youth is served: Oaks Christian of Westlake Village got better by getting younger. last_img read more

Castaic fishing offers leisurely escape

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! CASTAIC — Summertime isn’t here yet, but the living is easy and the fish are jumping at Castaic Lagoon. John Marascalco, 76, was among about a dozen fishermen on hand Friday for the lagoon’s twice-monthly stocking with quick-biting rainbow trout. Marascalco, who shaded his face with a towel wrapped around a straw hat, co-wrote Little Richard hits including “Good Golly, Miss Molly,” “Rip It Up” and “Ready Teddy.” Now the Mississippi native prizes his fishing time. “It’s my only escape,” Marascalco said while casting his line and throwing back trout too small to keep in his icebox. “If I were to put every one in right now, I’d be home in two minutes,” he said. “And I waited two weeks to go fishing.” The California Department of Fish and Game released 3,380 trout into Castaic Lagoon on Friday. It’s a move that’s repeated twice every month from January to May, said Ken Robledo, manager of the Sylmar hatchery that supplies the fish. As the trout were trucked to the lagoon Friday and pumped into the water, some errantly headed for shore and flopped onto the sloping concrete boat launch. Wearing a black leather cowboy hat, Mel Rodney, 52, “wrangled” the fish back into the water. Then he clapped and exulted, “OK, now to go fishing.”— Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.comlast_img read more

Creatures return to ravaged forests

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – As animals return to the Angeles and Los Padres forests eight months after fleeing the massive Day Fire, officials are warning hikers and residents to use caution. The fire scorched more than 160,000 acres and sent animals scurrying. Now, food and prime living space are up for grabs, and the competition’s heating up. Birds, in particular, are exhibiting aggressive behaviors as they re-establish nesting zones. “They’ll work the perimeter, actively flying to the edge of the territory. They’ll fight with other males, calling out, `This is my territory!”‘ said Kevin Cooper, a forest wildlife biologist in Los Padres. Returning animals are finding an abundance of nutritious grasses, flowers and herbs triggered to bloom by heat or water percolating through the ash. Ashes cover about 163,000 acres in the two forests, which abut for several miles. The Angeles encompasses roughly 650,000 acres; the Los Padres, about 1.76 million acres. While 10 percent of the woods burned completely, about 50 percent burned only moderately and 40 percent burned only slightly. Still, on the heels of the fire, animals including deer and fox fled to other habitats, often within a 10-mile radius. Mountain lions and bears may have had an easier time, as their range can span hundreds of miles. Cooper said it’s not known how many animals perished in the blaze. “We don’t find that many carcasses out there; they get eaten pretty quickly by scavengers,” he said. Those include condors, whose Hopper Mountain National Wildlife Refuge on the edge of the Los Padres burned in the Piru Fire in 2003 but was unscathed in last year’s blazes. “They’re pretty much nature’s recycling program, going in and cleaning up dead animals from the landscape and helping these vulture species to survive,” said Chris Barr, deputy project leader for the refuge, which is part of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. “Golden eagles can also be found feeding on carrion.” The Forest Service has recently reopened many areas of the forests, but officials said dry brush and other hazards remain. The fire danger in the Angeles forest was raised from high to very high Wednesday. Despite the charred regions, Cooper noted the positive side of wildfire. “The fires themselves are not something we consider devastating,” he said. “It’s a natural process, and having that variation in habitat increases biodiversity.” judy.orourke@dailynews.com (661) 257-5255160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Penalty-innovating judge retires

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – Newhall Superior Court Judge Floyd V. Baxter is retiring – effective Nov. 1 – after 20 years on the bench. Baxter, 65, has a reputation as a no-nonsense jurist, making headlines in 1996 when he sentenced a man who caused two deaths in a boating accident to 720 hours of community service at the county morgue. He also irked Santa Clarita Valley residents when he sentenced a local PTA president and stay-at-home mother to five days in jail for leaving the scene of an accident that caused damage but no injuries. Baxter is credited with bringing Teen Court, a program that involves youthful offenders in deciding their peers’ cases, to Santa Clarita in 1995. Under the program, first offenders are diverted from the juvenile justice system and tried by junior high and high school students, with community service sentences being imposed. The program will continue today in the Newhall court. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

He received a bachelor’s degree in business management from Woodbury University in 1958 and worked as a salesman before entering law school. He obtained his law degree in 1974 from what was then the University of San Fernando Valley College of Law. He also was a longtime reservist, first with the Army Reserve and later with the Air National Guard. Baxter is currently using accrued vacation time and will not return to his courtroom before the end of the month. Carol Rock, (661) 257-5252 carol.rock@dailynews.com last_img read more
